3 Rules to Allow the Law of Attraction to Work For You, Not Against You

By

the law of attractionWe know that the Law of Attraction has three steps:

(1) Ask for what you want;

(2) The Universe goes to work to deliver what you asked for; and

(3) We line up our vibration to match the vibration of our desire (we shift our emotional state to feel the way we think we’ll feel when we get what we want).

For anyone who might want to familiarize themselves with this three part process in more depth, I encourage you to read one of my prior posts.

In this post, I’d like to discuss Step 2 of the Law of Attraction, where we trust that the Universe is doing its part and get out of the way (at least temporarily).  And, just how we get out of the way and use the incredible power of the Universe often depends upon the problem we’re hoping to solve.  I’m often asked by clients how they should know when to “get out of the way” and let the Universe go to work, and when they should use their talents, motivation and strong work ethic to get things done.

Lots and lots of experiences have proven to me that stepping back and leveraging the power of the Universe is all it’s cracked up to be and more.  Let me tell you how it’s done and let your life begin to be easier, starting today! Here’s how I see it and how I’ve shown myself how to work with this incredible power that is always available to us. You probably already know that we need to be in a fairly positive emotional state to allow in this incredible Universal Energy.  I’m referring to that step three of the Law of Attraction expressed above, that you need to feel the way you’d like to feel when you achieve your desire, before you can achieve your desire.  That’s the whole vibrational alignment part of working with the Law of Attraction.

So, how do we handle minor issues, the error on the electric bill, the silly misunderstanding with a friend, the coworker whose mistake causes you to have to have a problem, when we’re feeling frustrated, stuck or angry?

Rule #1:  Don’t take any action at all when you are having your immediate reaction to the minor problem, that is, you’re not in alignment with the solution.

See, the Law of Attraction is really simple.  The solutions to everything we think about, that we’d like to improve, have already been created the moment we think of a desire for improvement. The moment we think about our desire, the Universe is working on delivering it.  But, unless we are in alignment with that desire (matching the feeling of the desire) we are not going to see the desire or the solution to our problem.  That’s just the way the Law of Attraction works.  So, the solution is right there but we’re only seeing the problem at this early juncture. Taking any action while we’re not in alignment won’t get us the desired outcome because it won’t be inspired action.  Our action will be coming from that feeling of frustration or anger or being overwhelmed, and our action will only create a solution that matches those feelings, not out desired outcome.

Rule #2—Wait Until You Are Able to Get into Alignment with Your Solution or Desire, Then Take Action (if it’s Still Necessary)

In order to use the power of the Law of Attraction to work for you, when you’re feeling stuck or frustrated, you may need to put the issue on the “back burner” for a while and get into alignment first.  I share methods on how to get into alignment in more detail my book, “How to Allow.”  Scripting is one method that works for me and I’ll show you just how in the example I’m using below. Let’s be really clear here.  Step 2 is not about refusing to take any action!  It’s about not taking action unless you are in alignment with the solution to your problems or your desires.  Your goal is to get into alignment and let the Universe work it’s magic.  Once you are in alignment, very often, your desires will be fulfilled or problems solved without the need for any action on your part at all, or you’ll get an idea for the inspired action that will help you to achieve your desire.

Here is a great example of how I dealt with a minor matter recently by applying the Law of Attraction strategies I share with my clients.  This story about a minor daily matter is just a perfect illustration of how we can get out of the way, under certain circumstances, and allow the Universe to do the work for us. I remind myself of this one often as it is just such powerful evidence of the way the Law of Attraction can work for us.

I placed an order with an online pet med company for a prescription for one of my dogs, which I needed right away. I had run into trouble before with ordering these pet meds, receiving an e-mail, which indicated that I needed to have a new prescription from my vet, or the vet refused to provide the prescription because my dog needed to be seen by the vet to update the prescription. Having been there, I made sure that my dog had all her tests, prescriptions were up to date, and placing the order for two medications should have been super easy. Yet, I received an email from the online pet med company that they could fill one prescription, but the vet was requiring my dog to be seen before they could fill the other prescription. I think that my first reaction was something along the lines of, “This is ridiculous, I’ve done everything I am supposed to do. They are just trying to make it more difficult to order online so that I’ll give up and get my prescriptions filled at the vet at a much steeper price.” So, I got ready to fire back an email or
call the veterinarian with that basic message and I thought, “No, how do you think that is actually going to work out for you? Really? You know how the Law of Attraction works. Come on, you know not to take any action when you’re not lined up.”

So, I didn’t just say, I’m not dealing with this.  I decided to do an attitude adjustment instead of taking hasty action while I was in a mood of frustration.  I used the Tune-Up Tool from my book “How to Allow,” and I wrote about it, very briefly. I got to the point where I was writing, “Actually that online pet pharmacy is really convenient and their prices are great. And, they ship things out immediately. And, yeah, the vets probably would rather we purchased prescriptions from them but this has worked before and they are a very busy office with multiple doctors. I can see easily how a mistake could have been made where they asked a different doctor and got the wrong information about my dog’s updated prescription information. An honest error could have been made and they have taken excellent care of my dogs and cat.” So that was it as far as action on my part. Then, I decided to take no action at all, at least for a day or so. I decided to let the Universe sort things out now that I had changed my vibe on the issue.

The very next day I received an email saying both prescriptions were being shipped to me immediately.  I never had to contact the vet or the online pharmacy.  My solution was handled for me when I changed my vibe on the subject.

Rule #3—When a Problem Seems Complicated and You Can’t Even Imagine a Solution That Would Pull Everything Together, Delegate it to the Universe Completely Until You Get That Clarity You Need

I want to differentiate what I suggested above for minor issues, from delegating what seems to be a complicated problem to the Universe completely when it just has too many moving parts and we are so lacking in clarity that there is no obvious action to take. We might have a very complex family issue, or be going through a divorce, or have a huge work problem involving other people, all of which seems beyond our control.  This is not to say that we will never take action, just that we will take inspired action when we receive that clarity that will allow us to make a move. Not only does the Universe have so much more information than we have about a complicated situation, but it knows things about our desires of which we aren’t always consciously aware. So, the Universe actually has a much better chance of crafting a solution for us that is better than we could imagine from our state of confusion.

So, I am all for honest, hard work, whatever feels best for you. Some of us have been raised to work really hard to get what we want. And, that’s okay if it feels good. Yet, it’s so clear to me now that taking action from an attitude of
lacking what we want or just being motivated by desperation instead of inspiration, never really leads to the outcome we truly desire.  Remember, the Law of Attraction always works, but if you are in an emotional state of lack, frustration or worry, it delivers what is an exact match to that!

So, action is often part of the equation, that is, inspired action. And, an attitude adjustment and waiting a bit before taking action is a great way to make life easier and let the Universe work on our behalf.  And, sometimes, completely delegating to the Universe, just saying “I’m letting you handle this right now Universe; I am done,” is sometimes the very best thing we can do to diffuse a complicated situation, which we simply don’t know how to deal with. I’ve received incredible solutions for complicated issues, which seem to come from out of nowhere when I’ve said, “Universe, I’m surrendering this one to you for now.”  Then every time I’ve thought about the problem, I remind myself, “Oh yeah, the Universe is handling that one.  Don’t need to think about it.”  When we delegate to the Universe completely, we can then move that issue off of our mental books, at least for a while, which leads to a higher vibration and eventual alignment with the solution.

And, by surrendering an issue to the Universe, we’ve not only removed our focus from the problem, which helps to raise our vibration, but we are also allowing ourselves to receive the incredible power that is always available to us, the power that creates worlds, which is a much more powerful problem solver. And, that incredible power of the Universe is not a bad thing to have on your side.

Let me know how it’s working for you.  Life should be getting easier!
